Fabulous Crochet

The other day we had a great discussion in our office…crochet or knitting? Ultimately, we all agreed we love both — why shouldn’t we?! Crochet and knitting differ in approach and appeal, but they can also be combined to create something special. A beautiful crochet edge can transform a knitted sweater from great to fabulous. Not ready to incorporate both? You can still appreciate the fact that a lot of knitting techniques can be replicated in crochet and vice versa. Today’s free pattern, Genoa, is the perfect example. Grab your yarn and hook and follow along as I explain how to crochet a beautiful cable. Follow along here for additional help with the specific crochet techniques used in Genoa.
